Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

This route is marked by a right facing corner that goes through two large roofs. Start with slightly chossy but easy rock to a nice set of parallel thin finger cracks, one in a right facing corner and the other on the face with white calcite. The cracks gradually open up and get easier until you get to the first roof. Once you have pulled the roof make sure to place a piece out left or your rope will get stuck in the crack below for sure! Continue up through the more difficult second roof and traverse right to the anchors. A great route, get on it! Save some finger size pieces for the top.

Location

Right of "Lift Kit".

Protection

3 each .3 to #2 Camalot, 1 Blue Alien and lots of runners. 70m rope.

good call on placing the piece to avoid your rope jamming in the roof. good route that is more merciful than it looks. Apr 13, 2012

This thing is a choss pile with lots of poor quality rock. One of the anchor bolts was also loose. May 16, 2012

The guidebook compares this route to Layaway Plan. If that route had loose, dirty, sharp rock, a crappy anchor and a rope eating crack, it would be a fair comparison. The anchor is two machine bolts hammered into the rock with homemade anchors that are too small to clip a biner into. Nov 4, 2014
